Territory of foodies
Enjoying local specialities and the specialities of the centenary
It’s impossible to resist the idea of biting into a chocolate Lion! Unless you prefer the lion’s paw, which is a cereal bread, accompanied by a Belfortaine, a tasty smoked sausage with wild garlic washed down with a Wild, the local beer. The Franche-Comté region is also rich in cheeses. Munster, Comté, Morbier, Cancoillotte, Mont d’Or and many others delight the taste buds. And regarding meats, the Montbéliard and Morteau sausages are local stars. Specialities created for the occasion will be offered in 2022. As of now, discover the centenary hot chocolate…
The Centenary Hot Chocolate
Organic Peruvian cocoa from master chocolatier François Pralus. A base that is both robust and sweet: just like the inhabitants of the Territoire de Belfort! Milky oolong to mark the work of the creator of this brew, as a “tea sommelier”. It not only provides vegetal notes, marking Belfort’s beautiful nature, but also a comforting milky sensation. Wild flavours of tonka beans and white pepper to refer to and honour our emblem, our favourite animal: the Lion of Belfort. Thank you Mr Bartholdi. Cinnamon to be embedded in our Alsatian roots. The emblematic spice of its pastries, it warms the hearts after a beautiful winter day at the Ballon d’Alsace: our beacon. And finally, Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar to soften, round and harmonise. In short, all these ingredients reflect the sweetness of life in our Territory!

Enjoy yourself at the market “Marché Fréry”
It is the most beautiful market in Franche-Comté, a real commercial cathedral, all glass and steel, which stands out from the city’s architecture. The builders of the gates of the Grand Palais and the Serres Monumentales in Paris, belonging to the Schwartz et Meurer company, built this marvel designed by the municipal architect Eugène Lux in 1905. Since then, we admire it, we feel good there and every Saturday and public holiday, we take pleasure in walking along the aisles to fill our baskets with regional products or flavours of the world and to exchange with the producers. At last, how good does it feel to sit down in front of a cheese board accompanied by a beer, listening to the musician of the week…
